Flair told the crowd at the Benzinga conference that he was addicted to Xanax before he found cannabis edibles. That was part of what inspired him to launch his own cannabis brand. He applauded his team for the early success of the brand and signaled that he was confident in the company’s expansion plans.

“I make more money now than I ever made wrestling, it’s ridiculous … and it’s all because these guys and Mike [Tyson] allowed me to come on board, be a part of their team and live the dream,” Flair said.
